Jive Aces swinging into town
8:30am Friday 14th September 2012 in News
THE Jive Aces, the UK’s number one jive and swing band, will be stopping off in Redditch as part of a tour.
The group play songs made famous by greats like Louis Prima, Bobby Darin, Big Joe Turner and Sammy Davis Jr as well their own originals.
An in demand sextet, they have worked with John Travolta, Van Morrison, The Proclaimers, Keely Smith and have performed for HRH Prince Philip.
The Jive Aces headlined (and sold-out) the first ever swing dance at the Royal Albert Hall and have played thousands of festivals, theatres and dancehalls throughout the UK, Europe, USA and beyond.
In 2012 the band were semi-finalists on Britain’s Got Talent, performing show-stopping versions of Jungle Book favourites I Wanna Be Like You and Bare Necessities.
They have also made hundreds of TV and radio appearances including, recently, a residency on BBC Radio London and TV appearances on Louis Spence’s Show Business and Come Dine with Me.
Tickets for the show, at the Palace Theatre on September 22 cost £15 (£14 discount) from the box office on 01527 65203.
